Vikings still could look at McNabb

Head coach Leslie Frazier wouldn't say who the Vikings' starting quarterback would be following the drafting of first-round QB Christian Ponder naturally, but don't count out Donovan McNabb.

Vikings No. 10 draft pick: WR Stephen Burton, West Texas A&M

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 8:56 p.m. ET
It's a long jump from junior college and Division II, but that's the jump that Stephen Burton is attemping to make.

Vikings No. 9 pick: DE D'Aundre Reed, Arizona

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 8:49 p.m. ET

Vikings No. 8 pick: LB Ross Homan, Ohio State

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 7:35 p.m. ET
The Vikings appeared to get very good value in Round Six in Ross Homan, who is a smart, productive, experienced prospect from a big school.

Vikings No. 7 pick: C Brandon Fusco, Slippery Rock

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 7:24 p.m. ET
Brandon Fusco is a developmental, small-school prospect who stood out at the Senior Bowl and could one day vie for a starting job.

Arkansas' DeMarcus Love is a massive, long-armed mauler who will add depth to the Vikings' offensive line and could play either inside or outside.

Round Four is for taking risks

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 2:51 p.m. ET
Remember last season? Round Four was full of calculated gambles. Some of them even paid off. This year is no different, as shown with the Vikings' selection of Iowa DT Christian Ballard.

Vikings No. 4 pick, CB Brandon Burton, Utah

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 2:37 p.m. ET
The Vikings might have made one of their better value picks with Utah CB Brandon Burton, who graded out as a third-rounder on some teams' boards.

Vikings No. 3 pick: DT Christian Ballard, Iowa

Posted April 30, 2011 @ 2:26 p.m. ET
The Vikings have taken a risky but talented defensive lineman in Round Four for the second year in a row.

Fantasy outlook: TE Kyle Rudolph

Posted April 29, 2011 @ 11:30 p.m. ET
Kyle Rudolph should be a good weapon in time, and if the Vikings try to bring in a veteran, it might alter his fantasy value. But for now, he can't be considered a front-line prospect.

Fantasy outlook: Christian Ponder

Posted April 29, 2011 @ 12:32 a.m. ET
Right now, Christian Ponder looks like the starting QB for the Vikings. But hold that thought a minute.

Vikings gamble on Ponder at No. 12

Posted April 28, 2011 @ 10:35 p.m. ET
The Vikings needed a quarterback. They took a quarterback. So why are Vikings fans so upset?
